I start a full time ops job this coming week at a small asset manager. Pay isn't great (which I'm not really concerned with) but the work will be very boring after doing twointernships.
I was contacted the otehr day about interviwing for an interesting opportunity - interning at a small and new (but being started by a reputable team). I told the firm that I graduated and was looking for FT. They then said that the way they are doing it at this firm is hiring interns and if the interns do well and the firm does well, the interns can potentially stay on as full time.
This leads me to two issues -
- If I go to this interview (in another city than FT job), I will have to take a day off early on in my FT job, which obviously will not look good.
- Lets say I don't get an offer to stay on for whatever reason - I may potentially be screwed come September.
I would never want to screw over a company I am starting with but I feel that in this market, one needs to take advantage of any opportunity.
Curious as to what everyone's thoughts are. To be honest I ambut my trading interviews did not work out obviously. There is potential room for movement at this firm as it is pretty small, but I don't want to do boring work. I did an ops internship before and hated it. This work seems like it will be similar, but I am happy to have a job.
Thanks in advance
